Slavisa Milovanovic

Trainee patent attorney
I joined NLO in January 2021 as a trainee patent attorney in the field of physics and mechanical engineering. Prior to working at NLO, I was a researcher at the University of Antwerp in the field of condensed matter physics, focusing on the physics of novel nanomaterials.


  • Electrical Engineering
  • Physics
  • Optics
  • Semiconductors

During my research career, I specialised in the modelling of electronic and mechanical properties of low dimensional materials. My work was mainly oriented towards understanding the piezoelectric effect, flexoelectricity, and phenomena arising upon straining or stacking different materials. This resulted in 18 publications, many of which were done in collaboration with universities in the US, China, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere.

As someone with a passion for science and technology, I am extremely pleased to be immersed in world-changing inventions and surrounded by technology pioneers. They make my job very interesting.

Since joining NLO, I was able to use my research experience to benefit our clients seeking advice and protection of their intellectual property. Degrees in electrical engineering and physics provided me with a solid background in a wide range of technological domains and the IP knowledge I am gaining at NLO helps me to “translate” the invention from a research language to a patent language.
